For competition against Intel, the nearest sets of numbers we have are the i3-4330, i3-4360 and the i5-4690, positioned well below and above the price point respectively.

AMD FX-8370E CPU Review: Vishera Down to 95W, Price Cuts for FX

by Ian Cutress |
www.anandtech.com
In the past, only specific workloads seem to cause the low thread count/high frequencies to kick in, meaning that an abnormal workload will keep the frequency low.
Due to the construction of some of the early motherboards intended for AMD’s no-IGP line, these early motherboards could only support 95W or 125W maximum, let alone the 220W of the FX-9590/9370 behemoths.
Next up, we have the FX-8320E which is an optimized FX-8320 with a core clock of 3.20 GHz, turbo clock of 4.00 GHz, an 8 MB L3 Cache and a 95W TDP.
The FX-8370E on the other hand has the same specifications aside from the 3.3 GHz core and 4.3 GHz clock speeds maintaining a TDP of 95W.
Next up, we have the FX-8320E which is an optimized FX-8320 with a core clock of 3.50 GHz, turbo clock of 4.00 GHz, an 8 MB L3 Cache and a 95W TDP.
AMD does have steamroller but they aren’t focusing it towards the high-end desktop market instead focusing it towards the APU market with their Kaveri APUs and Athlon processors.
But before we move to the details, I should acknowledge first that the FX-9000 series which is based on the x86 Piledriver architecture that include the FX-9590 and FX-9370 processors are receiving a major price cut starting 1st September.
The FX-9590 will retail at $215 US (tray version) and $199 US for the FX-9370 (tray version).
